Hello lovelies! I'm so excited to finally start doing some DIY's on the blog! This one especially because spring/summer's coming up soon for all of my American babes! I absolutely love the way these turned out. I kinda wish they didn't look so "tie dye" but I'm sure I'll try again soon!
-Old jeans or shorts
-Scissors (if you use old jeans)
Once you've cut your jeans into shorts, just pull the jean and tie little pony tails all over them. They should look similar to this. Tip: the more rubber bands you put on, the cooler they look at the end!
Fill your bucket half way with 1 part water and 1 part bleach. Just full enough for the shorts to be fully covered in water. You may need a rock or something heavy to weigh them down if they float to the top.
Voila! After about 5 hours of soaking in your bleach concoction, remove the rubber bands and then you're finished!! I love love love them and I hope you do too!
Washing tip: Wash them by themselves or with plain white clothes so they don't bleach your darker clothing and to get the "hotel swimming pool" smell out of them. It may take a few washes to get them smelling good again but they're worth smelling funny for :)

How did this project work for you? I'd love to see photos and get feedback!
